YO on the first stitch?
I am doing this pattern:

Casting on is not a problem, but the very first instructions are:

Lace Edging. Cast on 23 sts.
Row 1 (RS) yo, k2tog, knit to end of row.
Row 2 (WS) knit.
Repeat the last two rows once more.

Now I think you just put the working yarn on your right needle and then K2tog (the first two stitches) off the left needle.

Why do it this way? Don't you still just end up with 23 stitches on the needle? I don't under stand the purpose of the K2tog in these instruction. I have checked for errata and nothing pertains to these instructions. I don't see how this puts a hole at the beginning. It would make my brain feel better if I knew why and maybe how the YO is the first stitch. Thank you for your wisdom!!!
